Joe Sanchez, a jocular 84-year-old retired U.S. Army lieutenant, was vacuuming inside his Uptown home on the hot, sunny afternoon of Wednesday, Aug. 13, while Sally, his wife of more than 60 years, was dusting in the kitchen and living room.

Suddenly, Joe experienced a back pain so shocking, unprecedented and severe he had to stop and sit down. When he began to moan, their son Bruce told his mother to call 911.

When the Affordable Care Act is implemented Jan. 1, do not expect a switch to flip.

Low enrollment in the federal health insurance exchange means New Mexico health care providers will see a modest uptick, if any, in patient load.

“I will tell you that January 1st will be anticlimactic in a meaningful sense as far as the Affordable Care Act goes,” said Stephen Forney, vice president and chief financial officer of Lovelace Health System, which operates hospitals throughout New Mexico and has a campus in Roswell.

Interview with Dr. Iacuone Drinking/Driving

New Year's Eve is one of the biggest drinking nights of the year, but many aren't aware that what they drink can carry over to the next day.

In fact, experts say 1 in 3 drivers think they're fine to get behind the wheel after a night of drinking when they are actually still drunk.

People think they can sleep off the alcohol, maybe eat something to soak it up--but that's not true. Experts say it actually takes hours to become completely sober. For example, if you drink a bottle of wine in four hours, it could take up to 12 hours before you can safely operate a motor vehicle.
